'What kind of work will they do instead?'
Well, that's a tricky one: If the worker-robots advance faster than the killer robots, it seems likely that the unemployed humans will find exciting new opportunities in either the 'rioting jobless masses' sector or the 'rentacops keeping the rioting jobless masses in their place' sector.
If the killer robots advance as fast or faster than the worker-robots, I predict a surge of new applicants in the organic fertilizer sector.

BeOS would be the best, if it were not for OS/2.
Of course, OS/2 couldn't hold a candle to AmigaOS.
Unless RiscOS never existed.
Of course, if RiscOS was open source, *truly* open source, then it might be as good as FreeBSD.
However, FreeBSD isn't nearly as secure as OpenBSD.
And OpenBSD is great, unless you want to run it hardware people actually *own* which is why NetBSD is better.
Of course, NetBSD is missing all the amazing features of a mature OS like OpenVMS.
Except OpenVMS is a dinosaur, not nearly as modern as Solaris.
And if you're a masochist, Solaris is great, which is why sane people use ChromeOS.
Unless you actually want to *do* something, in which case there's QNX.
So the answer is... FreeDOS.
Does DESQView run in FreeDOS? 'Cause you do need an X server...

Which, as a man of world, you must know is the source of iocane powder. And because iocane comes from Australia, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals would try to fool wandering Vikings into thinking they could navigate with an iolite stone, we know we cannot trust this story they've put in front of us.

Linux is supposed to be hard
I can leave my girlfriend at a Gnome 2 machine forever and not get any questions about how anything is supposed to work, because it's functionally very similar to Windows.
Put her in front of a machine running Unity and she's continually asking 'why is this doing this?', 'how do I do this?', 'where did that window go and how can I get it back?', and 'what is this crap anyway?'
So I would say that Canonical has gone out of its way to make Linux hard to use.
